ST. LOUIS – Greetings from inside the Edward Jones Dome, where the lights are finally on, a few players are warming up on the field, the national anthem has already been rehearsed and the possibilities for starting tailback are down to two.
Indeed, it will be either Mike Bell or Tatum Bell opening at tailback as the Broncos just announced that Cedric Cobbs is one of the team’s eight inactive players for the game. Meanwhile, fullback Cecil Sapp was activated, meaning that he is likely the de facto third tailback if needed.
Courtney Brown will also sit out; he was deactivated after being listed as questionable throughout the week. Kenard Lang will start in his place at left defensive end, just like he has throughout the preseason.
Denver’s other inactive players include wide receivers Brandon Marshall and Charlie Adams, offensive linemen Chris Kuper and Adam Meadows, defensive end/tackle Elvis Dumervil and linebacker Nate Webster.
